  • "Chip" Filmmaker On Review
  • Steve Beasley on Cereal Lawsuit

    Letters to the EditorWe welcome your feedback.


    Hi Nolan,
    I just wanted to thank you for a great review of our little movie "Chip". I think you nailed it perfectly. It was good to meet you, the Guzzo brothers and the other Tampa Bay film makers. We all had a great time and look forward to checking out more local films. We are working on 2 more projects that we hope to finish soon. Thanks and we'll see you again.

    Jeff---Thank you, happy to help! Keep up the good work and I hope to see you with a new film at TFR soon. Note: I tried to respond to you earlier in the week, but got a Mailer-Daemon...apparently your work computer has an anti-Crazed Fanboy filter on it, haha! Just so you know I did try and write. ---Nolan


    In a tragic news update: Tony the Tiger, Quisp, Count Chocula, Frankenberry, Toucan Sam, The Magic Leprechaun, Snap, Crackle & Pop and countless other childhood heroes are in imminent danger of being laid off from their long-term career positions at their respective corporations, with scarcely a mention of severance and/or retirement. The vast majority of them (with the exception of Lucky Charms' Magic Leprechaun, who, prior to current fame was a "small" time thief with a knack for pick pocketing) have never known any other line of work and considering their advanced ages, will likely be reduced to carrying those inane "Will work for Food" signs. On the positive side, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream have said they'd be willing to discuss hiring Snap and Crackle, but consider Pop's advanced age a barrier to employment. Hopefully the Perry Mason-Johnny Cochrane-Ally McBeal Legal Defense Team (3 promininent, yet fictional attorneys) will represent these guys on the understanding that they made the organization what it is today.

    On a side note: In New Zealand, all cereal is geared towards the adult market, as is all food. The cereal boxes are incredibly boring, not to mention there's no prize inside and even boxes of cookies have stupid names like "Digestives". Who the hell wants to eat that?

    Readers----I admit I'm coming in at the tail end of this and not as up on it as I need to be, but I think what Steve is railing about is a lawsuit filed against cereal manuafcturers, (Kellogs, e.g.) for marketing junk food to kids. Sigh, here we go again.... ---Nolan
